      Modify the administrative menus in order to:

      • reduce confusion - especially understanding the differences between Customize, Configure and Manage
      • reduce the # of clicks to get to any admin option
      • clarify language a bit
        Upgrade will rebuild admin menu items and put out an alert to users that the admin menu has been updated.
